Advance tickets are the cheapest train tickets you can buy, and the earlier you book, the more you can save. They cover a one-way journey and (as the name suggests) you need to buy them before you travel. But you've got to be quick, as we only have a limited number of these cheaper tickets available.
Advance train tickets are available on our London route and Liverpool to Norwich services and are generally available 12 weeks ahead of journey dates. In certain circumstances some trains may be unavailable.

We've teamed up with loads of top attractions, including theatres, restaurants, galleries, museums and tours. All you need to do to claim your 2FOR1 is present a valid train ticket issued by National Rail stations and ticket outlets at your chosen attraction.
If you are making a one way journey or your ticket is valid for one day, you can use your National Rail tickets and offer vouchers only on the day of travel.
If you are making a return journey, you can use your National Rail tickets and offer vouchers any day on or between your outward and return journeys. For example, if you arrived on Thursday and will return on Sunday, your tickets will be considered valid for the offers on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Did you know kids under 5 travel free on all our trains? No need to book them a ticket, just hop on board and enjoy your journey as a family.
Children under 5 travel free of charge so you will not have to book a ticket for your child. However, as your child does not require a ticket, you will not be able to make a reservation and therefore a seat cannot be guaranteed.
